In February 2022, the EU Commission presented its proposal for a directive on corporate due diligence. The new EU law is intended to oblige companies to take responsibility with regard to social and environmental impacts in their supply chain. The Council of the EU agreed on a general approach on 1 December 2022 and votes in the EU Parliament are to be finalised before the summer recess. AK EUROPA, together with the EU offices of ÖGB and DGB, has taken this decisive phase of the negotiations as an opportunity to once again point out the necessary requirements for a strong EU supply chain law at an event in Brussels.
